after a few days of kinda iffy pipe, it was back on today. i had one of the hardest days of snowboarding ever. took some vicious bails, let's say i'm happy to be walking right now, and hiked my ass off all day in super hot july weather. snowboarding is getting crazy, and this upcoming year pipe contests are gonna be really really interesting. there's a handful of guys really puching hard in the pipe right now.
sorry no pics. maybe some video soon when i get out of the woods for more than an hour or 2 t a time..

just came home from mt hood. been riding at high cascade snowboard camp in their 22 foot pipe. was a pretty good time. pipe is good and the scene is mellow. if you consider about 20 of the worlds best pipe riders going at it everyday mellow... shaun white, steve fisher, louie vito, scotty lago, gretchen bleiler, kelly clark, mathieu crepel, nate johnstone, jj thomas to name a few... needless to say the sessions are going down hot and this winter is gonna be crazy.
i was camping, and will be again next week, down at trillium lake. epic view of the mtn and salamanders everywhere in the lake. which i think is pretty cool cause i had salamanders as a kid. lago and the mitrani brothers where also camped out down there, just around the corner from me. was fun times hanging with the boys. luke has gotten himself a pretty serious camping setup. biggest tent i've ever seen and it has a wood burning stove in it!i'm home in squamish for a few days, biking, climbing, skating and resting up for another session down at hood come friday.
